We're doing an article about hats for curly hair and would love your suggestions for hat types and product suggestions when wearing hats.

I really like the looks of a cloche or bell hat with curly hair.

Here's a blog article about them & a picture of someone we're all familiar with wearing one:

I like these hats http://www.girl32.com/?page=how_to

I have horses and am outside a lot, here in Texas it is two temps: hot and cold. I like that I can put my pony out the back and it doesn't squish it all and mess up my curls too awfully bad.
a hat with satin lining on the inside.
4a hair. MOD CG routine.

-Back on the (rajasthani) henna train! My hair is so much better now.
-KBB hair butter mixed with Hairveda Cocasta oil
-Spiral Solutions Deeply Decadent
when I wear a hat I wear either wear a toque or a peruvian hat (the one with ear flaps that hang down). Last year I put it on while bent over like a plop. This year I'm gonna try a pineapple.

I honestly think I look like a moron in a hat unless I'm wearing pigtails with it. Otherwise I look like this guy:



Unfortunately I have to wear a baseball hat as part of my summer uniform.

Here's a great pattern for a Calorimetry. It's a great knitted scarf-like hair thingy. There are lots of great photos in this link so you can see what they look like. Can't wait to try to make one of these this weekend.

I've avoided wearing hats since I went CGuy...

My next project is a hat. I wanna knit a chullo (the peruvian hats whatsercurl was talking about). So, I'm gonna put a satin lining on the inside, and I'll be able to use hats again...

I don't like wearing hats very often, though.

Thanks! Beth

I revamped the pattern and went on to make 2 more. I put fleece lining in both mine.

Do you think it would be too hard for a beginniner, Whatsercurl?

Very cute too. Wish I could wear headbands but I look pretty hilarious in them with my bushy hair. LOL

Well... whatsercurl already answered your question.

As she said, you just need to know how to do what the pattern says.

I didn't even realize there was a forum there until I looked after you mentioned it. It is knitting season again so I'll have to sign up.
